This is precisely the thing I can't get to work using the instructions
provided under fedora.  If I edit the /etc/postfix/aliases file and run
newaliases, everything's fine.  My postfix main.cf contains:

alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases, hash:/var/mailman/data/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases

If I cat the /var/mailman/data/aliases file, the aliases created in the
web interface are being added to it.  However, when I contact
list.test at nekophile.com, I get a "user unknown in local recipient table"
error (within pine).  This is after having changed "Host name this list
prefers for email" from mail.nekophile.com to nekophile.com.

What's more, if I mail to list.test at mail.nekophile.com, postfix sends me a 
msg titled " Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender" indicating:

Final-Recipient: rfc822; list.test at mail.nekophile.com
Action: failed
Status: 5.0.0
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; mail for mail.nekophile.com loops back to 

Any idea how to fix this problem?
